Russom and Anna need to go all the bullying needs to stop! They have lied been too lazy and lost too much money to keep they aren't worth the 180 thousand a year they make. They have lied to everyone community board taxpayers st.j and OE alike. They have lied and intimidated us into thinking we needed this merger. And that teachers will lose jobs. Russom was fired from Northville for a reason. We need to stand up and get rid of this tyranny where no one is allowed rights. St.j and O.E alike need some cleaning out to do of our districts. So everyone stand in a united effort to clean out our schools and fix things for our future generations starting with the administration.

Somebody should start a petition to get those two blood suckers out of that school. I am an outsider and I am all done with the school. Fortunately my kids have made it to two great colleges.

If you meant combined, im sorry, read it wrong. Still, thats what superintendents make all over the state, some make alot more, you cant take away their salary, even if they dont deserve it.

New York (CNNMoney)- Three days on the job and staring at a $9 billion budget gap, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday he would cut his $179,000 salary by 5% amid reports he will freeze the pay of most state workers.

Cuomo said he is planning a 5% salary cut for senior state officials, including Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy, as well as the governor's secretary, counsel, director of state operations, counselor and chief of staff.

Are you kidding me? How many hours do you work a day? I guarantee you Anna puts in more hours. She is dedicated to that school and those kids. Before you start A post you should check your facts. Send me your references where they have lied, and intimidated you. The merger is needed now. You coming out swinging when it's to late just shows how ignorant you truly are. These issues needed to be addressed years ago, where were you and your big mouth then? Not caring.. Not involved in your school. As for cleaning out our school districts how is that going to solve anything especially when your talking about the people who are actually doing good. Russom salary had to be voted on by the board and by the community. Again showing your incredible ignorance. Miss that vote? I agree change needs to happen where you are wrong is thinking you or us can change it NOW like I stated above restructuring our schools needed to be done years ago, things like this don't happen over night, if you have such a strong opinion on the matter where we're you then ? When you get your facts straightened out let me know and we will have a real conversation on the matter.

Thank you for posting how much these people make, for a school with 360 students. With a new board from each districts we can address this mess. This merger can work if we join together and work together, Get rid of overpaid employees and take a stand. ST JOES , can work , if we work to make it happen. Stop bickering over OE will bail out ST J or reverse. Mistakes have been made both districts, we will have a chance to correct it. If you have a mind, please run for the new school board, no matter , STJ or OE

School superintendents have been over paid for years. The number of school superintendents should be based on the size of the school district. For example,why is it necessary to have three superintendents for Fort Plain, Canajoharie and St.Johnsville. One would suffice, but that takes common sense,which NYS seems to lack.

next should be any board member that voted no! a yes vote is voting Yes for a better school. No votes are for no future. If the board members cant see that and want to continue to stand behind false info they should resign NOW!Teachers that want to stay should decline any pay raises offered, coaches should be a volunteers.

To OE Parent,
I think teachers should work for free. We could let their families live in the school and eat school food. That would save the districts hundreds of thousands of dollars. Then we would see the teachers who truly teach out of love and passion for the job. Hey, we could have little amish schools that serve 10-20 families each. That's a great idea as well.
I think we should get rid of sports all together, since they cost too much money and only 1 kid has ever made it professionally anyway. Get rid of band since none of the musicians have ever made any money off of it. We could run a school for about 1/10th of what we pay now...and I could save $32.46 per year on my taxes. Now that's what I call a logial solution!!!
